"We have just completed our baby massage course with Catherine. She is a brilliant instructor and the massage techniques have been really useful, particularly for relieving wind and spending quality bonding time together. The class provides a great environment for new mums with helpful advice and support in a laid back atmosphere. Would very highly recommend. We will miss our Thursday mornings! Thank you so much Catherine!"

"Me and my LO absolutely loved our 5 week baby massage course. Due to silent reflux and sleep deprivation we both had quite a rough start but these sessions have definitely brought us closer and has made me more aware of my baby's needs. Catherine is a wonderful instructor and very empathetic. Learning specific massage techniques to relieve pain from gas and help with constipation has been incredibly helpful: it has helped my LO feel better and helped me feel more in control and able to help him when he is in pain. I'm certain of our joined achievement as both my GP and the osteopath have confirmed that Otto is doing much better and I wholeheartedly believe that massage has been key to our progress. Thank you Catherine!"

"Ralf thoroughly enjoyed baby massage, it’s the best class we’ve attended so far. Classes are not too big or overwhelming. The Massage has been helping Ralf with his colic. It’s a shame it’s only 5 weeks thou. Might have to book another course..."

"Just finished this course at the Chapel Allerton location. It was fab! Such a lovely thing to do with your baby and Catherine is such a nice lady. I was worried about my baby crying or feeding throughout & although he did on occasion, everyone was in the same boat & Catherine just recapped anything you missed. My little’un was soon loving every class & I’ve met a nice new group of mums out of it too. I’d definitely recommend this class".

"Baby Mia and I just completed our 5-week course, and really enjoyed all classes! I feel a lot more confident when massaging Mia having practised the different body part moves across the stretch of 5 hourly sessions. Even more so, our massages seem to have helped Mia’s digestion and allowed us to bond through touch".

"Just finished the five week course with Catherine and me and my son Isaac have loved it. Catherine is a great teacher who really knows her subject. It's a great bonding experience with your baby and massage can also help with colic and digestive complaints as well as promoting good sleep. There is also lots of lovely chat with the other mummies and time to talk hints, tips and recommendations. Highly recommended".

'My 24 weeks old daughter Elia and I have just finished 5 weeks of baby massage with Catherine. We loved every minute and are so sad the course has come to an end. We are even thinking about doing it again!
The massage techniques have helped both Elia and I. I now know her body in a way that I didn't before and now know how to help her relax. It's a great way to bond and spend time together and we would recommend it to anyone, especially Catherine's class. She is such a good teacher- a great explainer, a very good listener, kind and friendly, and fun. Thank you Catherine xxx'

'I've just finished a 5 week course with Catherine in Horsforth. I would highly recommend this course. Catherine is lovely and it's a fab way to spend some dedicated one on one time with your baby. I really enjoyed going and it was brilliant to have something planned in to look forward to each week. Sitting around chatting at the end was an added bonus to learning the massage techniques. This was my first baby class and I was initially quite nervous but it was so friendly and I genuinely enjoyed being there. Thank you Catherine for being so welcoming xx'

'This was a great 5 week course which I really enjoyed attending with my little girl. I learnt lots of different massage techniques which I have been using at home on a daily basis. My little girl loves being massaged and I can tell she finds it very relaxing. Catherine was an excellent facilitator and was very knowledgable about baby massage. It was also really enjoyable to meet other parents and babies and share experiences with them. I would recommend this course to other parents who want to learn new skills. Thanks Catherine!'.

'Can't recommend baby massage and Catherine's classes enough. Although Faith didn't participate fully (sleeping though half of one class and crying during another) the skills we've learnt have been really useful at home in calming, bonding and helping a windy baby become less windy. I also enjoyed being reminded of old children's songs long forgotten and hanging out with other parents of similar aged children and realising we are all doing a pretty damn good job, and that every baby cries, giggles and it's fairly unpredictable! Catherine was lovely and helpful and offered really great advice, far beyond the barriers of massage! Thank you Catherine for all of your help, advice and support!

'Thoroughly enjoyed our classes with Catherine which have sadly just finished. Has brought home the importance of touch and was a lovely bonding experience for me and my son. We will continue what we've learnt into the following months and years. Classes are taken at a gentle pace and Catherine has a lovely way of teaching. Thank you!'

'Absolutely fabulous! Oliver and I have completely loved our baby massage sessions with Catherine, they have been a highlight of our week.
Oliver certainly enjoys being massaged and we relish the quiet time together. He is my third baby and this is the third time I've done the course, I would highly recommend it. It's relaxed, friendly and completely baby led (in that the bubbas can feed/sleep/cry/be danced around as they please) so there's no pressure on the mummies to keep their little ones still and quiet.
Thank-you Catherine, you make the course, you're great!'

'Just had our last class with Catherine today at Horsforth Children's centre. I did the course 3 years ago with my son and liked it so much I returned with my daughter. It provides one to one time with baby which deepens bonds and relaxes mum, too. Laurel loved meeting the other babies and the calm and gentle atmosphere really helped her chill out! Catherine is a great teacher. She really gets to know the mums and babies and what they need, and her explanations and demonstrations are easy to follow. She also provides lots of useful tips on development, settling baby and additional massage routines. We are sad to see the course end but will be continuing with our massages at home! Highly recommended. Thank you Catherine!'

'Camille and I loved our baby massage course. It was a small, gentle and intimate environment where I really enjoyed spending 1-1 time with my baby. I loved Catherine's calm and caring approach and it felt like she knew all of our babies and what they liked by the end of our 5 weeks. The cookies and juice were a lovely treat to end each session! I learnt lots of strokes and the winding routine has been really useful when baby has been uncomfortable. Fingers crossed to see a video of ideas for massage as baby gets older - songs and games to play, I couldn't take in Catherine's bank of knowledge in one go! Absolutely brilliant and sad it is finished! We will certainly be continuing massage most days at home!'

'Myself and my son have just finished our course with Catherine. Throughly enjoyed it and learnt so much. Catherine is a really good teacher who is warm and friendly. Further is a very good listener. I would recommend this course as my son has benefitted from it. I will be doing this course again when I have my next child. Thank you again Catherine and also
for the biscuits/cakes you give us after the session'.

'My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed this course. Not only did we find the course relaxing (my baby fell asleep so quickly after each session!), we learnt some great techniques for dealing with wind and colic. The course also teaches you about your baby's mood state (cues to look out for) which I've found particularly useful at home. Catherine is lovely and made everyone feel welcome. Whilst I was worried that my baby would cry during the session, Catherine made me feel totally at ease that we could stop at any time and soothe/feed. All in all, a fab course that I'd highly recommend'.

'Really enjoyed the course. I was a bit nervous before going along as I wondered if it would be quite serious and I wasn't sure what would happen if my baby didn't want to participate. However, Catherine put us all at ease and created a very relaxed atmosphere. The course was completely baby led and it didn't matter at all if my little boy wanted to feed or just sit out for a bit. It's also more than just a 4 week course as I have learnt massage techniques I will hopefully use for a long time to come. Thank you!'

Aiveen, December 2015

'Lily and I have thoroughly enjoyed the baby massage course. Our teacher Catherine was friendly, down to earth, and professional. The venue was accessible, easy to find, and the room was lovely & cosy for my baby. The massage techniques were easy to remember, and each session was baby-led in a calm and relaxing environment. We were also able to socialise with other new mums and babies and share tips and advice. We have learnt so much and the bond between me and my baby has been strengthened even more through massage. I cannot recommend Catherine and the course highly enough. It was reasonably priced and worth every penny spent'.

She was extremely knowledgeable and delivered the classes with an outstanding balance of care and professionalism. The classes were such a special time to share with my daughter and I learnt a great deal about how to help soothe and calm her. I would recommend Catherine and Loving Baby Massage'.
